"Be the change you wish to see in the world."~Ghandi


The mother of jealousy is sweet on the outside, but inside pure evil.

The father of jealousy is fire in disguise.
Jealousy is a steaming thermometer, ready to burst.
Jealousy is trying not to care.
Jealousy lives inside those lacking.
Jealousy is green with envy.
Jealousy cares for anyone who didn’t make it.
Jealousy’s enemy is acceptance, love, COMPASSION


The mother of compassion puts others before themselves.
The father of compassion tries on many shoes, relation to all.
Compassion is strong, a rainbow of colors, acceptance.
Compassion is always offering to help in any way they can.
Compassion lives in the hearts of those who understand the true meanings.
Compassion is a flowing river of different paths, different directions.
Compassion loves hope, courage, kindness.
Compassion’s enemy is hatred, selflessness, JEALOUSY.

I really like that way you combined two poems into one poem! It was very smooth, but if you can, try to put more similes, metaphors, and have some cool word choice! This will add some "pizazz" to your poem! Otherwise... Good JOB!
